Elixir is an excellent choice for dining. The food is superb and the manager and waitstaff are friendly and accommodating. I have been to Elixir a number of times; my only complaint this time was that our service was kind of slow to start: rather a long time to get water, wine, appetizer, particularly since the restaurant wasn’t very full when we arrived. After the initial delays, however, everything went smoothly.

My husband I went here for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. Highly recommend! The food and drinks were delicious and the perfect serving size. I love the low lighting and candles, really made it romantic for us. We will definitely be returning.

I haven't been to Elixir in years. I am not sure why because I loved it last time too. My friend had never been and she and I will be back for sure! Delish!

Very pleasant experience, they seated in an empty room before other reservations arrived. The server checked up on us a lot to make sure were enjoying the food. This was my second time here and I would definitely come again.

Most importantly, the greeting, service and food at Elixir were excellent. We were in the area from out of town and several locals recommended Elixir as one of the best choices for dinner. They were right, but they should have warned us that the neighborhood and exterior of the building are pretty gritty--it would have reassured us that we were in the right place. Once past the door, the people, service and food were everything we wanted on a cold wet night. The reasonably priced wine list has several interesting options, including a few as half-bottles.

One of our favorite places to dine in the Upper Valley. The menu is imaginative with seasonal specials and everything is perfectly prepared. The wine specials are especially nice- you can ask for a taste before ordering a bottle- plus it's a great opportunity to try wines you might never think to try. The atmosphere and service is always warm and welcoming. Highly recommended!

We love love love this restaurant. It’s comfy, medium low lit, with excellent food and affordable but strong drinks. We always get the truffle fries, and if I could eat their filet Mignon every day I would. We were given a gift card to this restaurant for our wedding, and we’ve been back three times since, and given a gift card here to a friend recently. Highly recommended, just make sure to make reservations on weekends

Great find. Everyone in the staff pitched in to make this a great dining experience. Reasonably priced . As a New York Metro area resident, I find that this restaurant would easily be a great find in the New York area. Will be sure to be back when in the area again.

We don't get up this way often, but having had a wonderful meal a couple of years ago, this was the only place we considered. We both ordered the shrimp scampi, which is one of the best I've tasted. both deserts - "Bananas Foster" bread pudding and La Joie du chocolat were worth saving room for.

My wife and I have dined here several times over the years and have never been disappointed. It's our regular spot for birthdays, anniversaries an special events. The owner always greets us with a warm hello and smile. We have always had wonderful wait staff and they never rush us thru our meal. One time we had to sit at the bar which turned out to be a wonderful experience. Great bar tender with a good sense of humor.
Our regular meal is the Filet mignon . Always done to perfection.

We always enjoy going to Elixir. The food is excellent as is the service. On a cold winter night, it can be a little chilly when people come and go. Adding a entrance that is separated from the dining room would fix that issue.
